California Strawberry Festival


Last weekend I went to the California Strawberry Festival in Oxnard to partake in some fruity fun with one of my good friends. While it wasn't the amazing time we anticipated, I am still glad we went.

Oxnard is a coastal town located about 30 minutes north of Los Angeles. To put it into perspective for those of your who aren't from California, it's a neighboring town to Calabasas, the Kardashian's hometown.

When we arrived we learned that the festival was basically a swap meet with strawberry flavored foods and beverages. I went straight for the funnel cake...which was made with frozen strawberries. Major fail! Then I grabbed a strawberry shake. About halfway in I was strawberried out and had to toss it. After my tummy had settled I bought a jumbo dark chocolate dipped strawberry for the road.


I didn't get any strawberry pizza or beer which was basically a crepe and wine haha. I think I'll live though.

The idea of a strawberry festival sounds like a lot of fun! I would have had to have tried the strawberry pizza just for kicks. :)

Haha…you said Calabasas and I immediately knew what you meant. I love Strawberries and the festival sounds like a nice time. I don’t understand why they would do a funnel cake with frozen strawberries, but the shake sounds and looks good! Strawberry pizza sounds interesting and not like pizza at all. They do have some craft beers with a hint of Strawberry. I think the brand is Abita and it is supposed to be really good.
